Art teacher to be honoured by show
A GROUP of Devon artist will be opening their latest exhibition at a Mid Devon gallery in memory of one of their members who died earlier this year, writes Stephen Davy-Osborne.
Art Haven's exhibition at the Red Earth Galleries, Bickleigh, near Tiverton, will open later this week in memory of artist Daphne Cartwright and will feature some of her work.
Artist Anne Jackson said: "Daphne has been a long-standing member of the group, and she was a well-loved art teacher in Crediton. She died at an early age after a short illness.
"We feel the loss of her from the group, and decided to dedicate the show in her memory as a little gesture and decided to have her work included amongst our own."

The group was established in 1999 after gaining funding from Exeter City Council to curate and mount a series of exhibitions in the former Maritime Museum on Exeter Quay. Since then, the group has gone on to exhibit every year in a number of different galleries across East and Mid Devon.
Among those whose work will be featured alongside Daphne Cartwright's paintings are Gabi Krukenberg-Tayler (photography and painting), Robert Joyce (painting and drawing), Liese Webley (painting), Paul Cartwright (photography), Christine Sawyer (drawing and textiles), David Sawyer (sculpture), Stella Tripp (painting and mixed-media) and Anne Jackson (textiles).
This is the second show for the group at Red Earth following a successful exhibition in 2011. All artworks will be for sale, including small-scale works, drawings and unframed prints for the art collector with a smaller budget.
The exhibition will run from Saturday until September 22. The opening hours are 11am-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays and 11am - 5.30pm on Monday to Fridays.
The group also has a continuing arrangement with Haines Watts Chartered Accountants in Exeter, which sees the group curate four exhibitions a year.
